Note: The photo above showing the 2 bottles is for size comparison only. The only bottle listed for sale here is the double magnum of Abacus XI
NV ZD Abacus XI Double Magnum. This particular bottle you (the Abacus XI) has 17 vintages of reserve cabernet in it. 1992-2008
This is from my private collection.
As far as I know this is the ONLY double magnum for sale IN THE WORLD. If there is another one in existence I have not seen nor heard about it.
There are only 200 cases of Abacus produced each year. Most are 750 mL.
ZD wines contacted me about this bottle and only 20 Double Magnums of Abacus XI were ever made. ZD does NOT sell any other large format versions of Abacus. Therefore only 750 mL and 3000 mL sizes exist.
Likely a few of the other 20 bottles made have been consumed, which makes this even rarer.
Some really cool statistics:
With 20 bottles made and 7 billion people in the world the chances of someone else owning a similar bottle are 1 in 350,000,000.
The chances of winning the Powerball lottery is 1 in 175,000,000.
Therefore you’re twice as likely to win the powerball as meet another person who owns one of these bottles. Lol. 😉
3000 mL Double Magnum
This is from my private cellar. It’s been Stored in an optimum climate controlled cellar on its side in the dark at 55 degrees F and 75% humidity since purchase.
Flawless. Perfect fill level, label and wine clarity.
Winemaker Notes – Abacus is our ultimate Cabernet Sauvignon, combining
the best qualities of an aged wine with the best of a youthful wine,
together in one sumptuous mouthful. Incredible depth and complexity
along with a deep, lingering finish are backed by an intense fruit
character. The concept was born on a de Leuze family retreat, when ZD
Winemaster, Robert and his brother, Brett were enjoying a wonderful old
Cabernet Sauvignon. They agreed that the deep complexity and subtle
nuances that develop in older wines are always accompanied by a loss of
fruit. What if there was a way to blend the elegance of an older
Cabernet Sauvignon with the intensity of fruit found in a younger wine?
Always eager to accept a challenge, Winemaster Robert deLeuze took on
the task of creating such a wine, unlike any other produced in the
world. The result is a ‘solera style’ multiple-vintage blend of every ZD
Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon ever produced, which is held in barrel until
